Using #Prayer As An #ExecutiveFunction Skill Parent Tool?

Jeremiah 29:7 The Word of The Lord

And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

Regardless of religion, can a holy book be used as a standard by which to self-monitor one self? I believe so.
 Can a Father use it as a 'go to' guide that can guide the mind, as well as help the Father guide the mind of their children? I believe so also. 

Can prayer be the guide? What is to be said about the growing prevalence of studies showing that prayer heals people from disease? I believe so and science is showing so. See here:  http://w3.newsmax.com/newsletters/mhr/issues/prayer02/mhr_prayer02_2.pdf and here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/richard-schiffman/why-people-who-pray-are-heathier_b_1197313.html


Praying brings about peace in the heart and mind in a very immediate way. This manifests an immediate metacognitive slide into an attitude of lovingkindness, gratitude, contentment, emotional rest, and peace, regardless of one's immediate circumstances. I believe that Father's can take time to read a short, stomachable portion from their holy book each day.

Directions:

 Start small. Consider viewing your holy book as a standard by which to help guide your family. Make it a point to bringing the family into prayer to create the metacognitive mindset. Presciption to see effects in kids: 2-5x's/day and definitely always at meal time. Gauge progress after 30 days of this. Then keep going.  Here is a link on Daddy praying poems to lead the family daily:


Daddy's can be Lovingkindness facilitators aside from being the traditional physical providers for the family. The whole electromagnetic energy thing seems to be like icing on the cake when one realizes the power of practicing good values, like giving thanks in regular words before each meal in a God-focused way. Over the long term your kids will have an added measure of resilience, a strong sense of family, and have increased emotional control due to living a prayer-filled life. 

So have we found another executive function skill tool to put in the tool box that is better than gold (even at these prices)?

Clinical Teachers: Armies of One / #edchat #criticalthinking #education

It is not the responsibility of empty vessels to create the motivation to learn, but rather, the prerogative to teach, the very responsibility of it, must be entrusted to the teacher. It can be so, that according to a child’s social-economic status, a affluent upbringing can be infused with a ‘comfort space’ of human development not generally experienced in the life of the child who hails from a low-income community. 
This juxtaposition in the human development and daily experiences of the affluent child and the child who lives at or near the poverty line bring a different array of positive and negative forces which impact their general well-being. As these two general sets of children age, the difference becomes more contrasted and is clearly evident at the time both reach middle school years. One need only look at children who receive private schooling as opposed to those who receive public school education in low-income neighborhoods. A child who attends private schooling and then e…

The Golden Rule & The Duty of Critical Thinkers / #socialresponsibility #edchat #TeamUSA

updated 2:24 pm est 11/10/17 The idea of cultivating critical thinkers is easily a lofty ideal purported to be achieved throughout academia and espoused as the hallmark of journalistic integrity.  Achieving the critical thinking mind requires a certain bravery, wherein, once our ability to tap into our own knowledge of content matter is done, we must require it upon ourself to contrast our assessment and infer from an ‘outsiders’ point of view what is true and right and what is inaccurate and, even possibly, the propagandization of a special interest.
.
For the critical thinker, the affinity to discern is attached to our decision to look at the hard truth and favor this over our viewpoints, our political inclinations, and our stance on any given subject. This is hard to do.

In the following essay, I ask what exercise in democracy is achieved if political forces practice varying levels of indoctrination, in effect swaying public interest towards their ‘camp,’ rather than promoting …
